Temple of Poseidon at Sunset

52-Week Challenge, 2017
Week 38: 50mm

This is actually 51mm, but don’t tell anyone.

There is a story behind this image in that it almost didn’t come to pass. My travel companions and I ran into a couple of dishonest cabbies on the way to Sounion, Greece from Athens. To make a long story short, we ended up being deposited in the middle of nowhere to catch “the next bus.” Can you believe it, an honest Uber driver rescued us in the middle of nowhere and we arrived safely at our destination where we spent many happy hours. After sunset, we looked around for a way to get back to Athens, thinking we could find another Uber driver, but nope. Not even a cabbie in sight, honest or no. Asking questions will get you everywhere. Ten minutes later, we caught the last bus of the day back to Athens (located just around that corner there) and we happily (and quite cheaply) arrived back “home” safe and sound and with nice sunset photos.

52-Week Challenge, 2017
Week 39, Water

Because I’m still catching up with the 52-week challenge, I looked through my recent trip photos to find water shots. There were plenty of gorgeous scenes of the Greek and Sicilian coastlines, but…well yawn. This arrangement of an empty sparkling water bottle and two glasses empty but for a tablespoon of water at the bottom of one spoke to me more. The only thing I’m bothered about is the overbalance of blue on the left side. Maybe that’s because I just got finished working on photos for Week 37, which featured balance.

Week 37, Balance–give each area in the photo equal visual weight

This is Week 37 photo number 1. Since I’m still catching up, I decided to post two photos for this week’s challenge. I couldn’t make up my mind which spoke balance more. You decide.

Week 36: Low Key

I thought I would try out a wedding photo in color using the low key Nik filter–yes cheating. The Photoshop videos were way too annoying to sit through much less try to follow. Not sure if this fits the bill for true low key, but I liked the effect when compared to the original, particularly in the skin tones.

You might recognize this couple from a previous 52-week challenge photo. They are my son and daughter-in-law.
